Wedge addict


Was bragging to the koochi moochi the other day about me being able to shimmee shimmee yaya in high heels when I was young .
They may not have been dancing shoes but I sure was able to work them like Pitbull's stiletto donning dancers can . 
Back then . 
Need to emphasise back then .

Nowadays , I have turned into a wedge addict because of um , let's say , all that food gave me an issue with the centre of gravity .

Shoes you must buy from Thai street markets



Well , what kinda shoes should you get when you have the chance to do so ?
I'm recommending those plastic or jelly ones ,that are close copies of famous brands with a twist in design , as well as colour . 

Despite the ridiculous price tag ( around 25 ringgit per pair ) these Thai made shoes are so stable you can run in them , I'm not kidding !
 They're also surprisingly comfy and last so long they can walk you through rain , flood waters and seawater , yet last forever and never spoil ! I should know , because I've done all of that with earlier versions .

Because those with heels are so popular , they get snapped up like hot cakes so you really have to search and if you see one in your size , snap it up quick !

You can pick some of these shoes up in Malaysia too but they're hotter than a boiling pot of dhall and a lot of times , you'll need to stake out or keep tabs on the stall , so that when new stocks arrive , you get them before others do !

So , anyway , I snapped up 3 pairs the other day , I'll show you the first one today .
Currently into light brown , nude and skin tones , I picked the plastic shoe below , for the very unusual heel design . Not too high , super comfortable this .

Reebok Sayumi and a Classic Royal duffel


Seriously now . I went back in to see where I had gone wrong . Why so many found them suitable , yet I found fault with the Les Milles Hayasu line. Nope.
 Still does not give me that proper fit . Huge issue with a snag in the heel area . 
Really don't see what the fuss is all about .
Had also snuck back into another Puma outlet , not impressed when I realised that they still had a long way to go in terms of durability as well as discolouration .

Then I decided to slip my foot into the brown and white Sayumi . Hey , not bad . 
Found a black and white lying around  but not before a little bit of drama .

Awkward B23022 moment


Have already worn this pair twice so far . Didn't think much of it when I first purchased it . Purposely got a lower priced range that could take the pounding without costing a bomb . Naturally , I least expected the other girls to be constantly checking out my feet .
Apparently , I'm not the only one who likes the old vintage 3 stripe look . Of course this one's kinda got an updated look but not enough to convince koochi moochi who loves his overseas bought Skecher's to death ! ( how to compare lahhh , cheaper and nicer made some more )

Anyway , one of them stared so hard , with such a steely silence , I just had to look back to see what was bothering her .

Two three stripes


Honestly , I don't know what came over me .
Maybe I do .

At first I was completely disappointed after trying out another sports shoe brand ( a sports brand I've been gaga about lately ) . Nothing seemed to fit . Anything below 400 ringgit was all hype , you'll need to look at the higher end ones for a decent pair , but I was having none of it .There were snags , the cushioning was very odd and on the umpteenth pair , I swore I'd get a blister if I ended up with a pair for the next few months .

Looked at a cheap sports shoe brand . Apparently my ongoing exercise regime has made me more sensitive about getting the right fit . Too tight on one foot , too much grip on the sole . Forget it .

Walked into Adidas and that was it .
Their shoes fit so snugly , damn , I ended up with 2 pairs !

Germany is a quality shoeholics haven !


When I go overseas , I never look for those familiar brands we have back home . Because most times , some of   
  the most reknowned here , are pretty insignificant or nobody even knows them  . Besides when you buy local , it is no less better than what is marketed to you by pioneers who exposed us to 
. such names in the first place

That's how I found my first Marco
